    Description

    Hello,
    We are a family of 3 and we run an organic farm, with chicken, 1 cat and 2 dogs. Marc is an agricultural technician and we need your help to keep the farm in good shape as well as some maintenance works in our house. We try to develop all kinds of products, including our own olive oil.

    If you wish to practice a specific language ( portuguese, french or english), then you have come to the right place! I have been a language teacher and have a degree in translations.

    Also, Marc is a handy man - if you wish to learn a specific trade, especially in agriculture, building or mechanics, he can help you with that!

    We would very much appreciate if you could help us with:

    *️️️️️ maintenance
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ cleaning and gardening
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ help with the animals
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ help in preparing our own meals (please observe that we will not prepare your meals) Food will be available and we would appreciate if you would help us prepare the meals, as we eat together.
    * if you have studied Digital Marketing, that is a big plus!

    We are situated in a quite area, but only 4 km from the beach.

    If you think this would suit you, please contact me as soon as possible. We accept one person at a time or couples. You can stay in a small studio, inside the farm and will be eating with us.

    Me and Marc are very easy going people, positive and open. Marc is from Belgium, I am Portuguese and have lived 25 years abroad (both in Sweden and Luxembourg). Should you wish to better your knowledge in either portuguese, french or english, you came to the right place!

    Please feel free to contact us any time, we will be happy to answer you.

    See you soon!
    Paula

    Help

    During certain times of the year, we need help to pick up olives, or almonds, for example. Other periods it is mostly cleaning and fixing (as we tend to accumulate work sometimes).

    We always have things to be done, especially during winter and spring time, either around the house or outside.

    Besides help around the house, like cleaning, organizing and cooking,

    Any help is more than welcome :-)
